ROSEVILLE  (AP) – The first electronic pull-tab games are likely to appear soon in Minnesota bars, helping to raise money to build a new Vikings stadium.

The Gambling Control Board meets Tuesday to consider approving five games from Las Vegas-based Acres 4.0.

The board’s vote is the last regulatory hurdle for the first animated electronic versions of the paper pull-tabs that have long been a fixture in bars. The new games include “Treasures of the Jungle” and “Big Money Heist.”

Board director Tom Barrett says he expects more competition in the electronic pull-tab market in coming months. He says it will take several months to gauge the games’ success.

Lawmakers are relying on taxes from electronic pull-tabs to help the state repay borrowing for the $975 million stadium in downtown Minneapolis.
